Besides specifically Pagan/New Age music, as in rock,rap,pop,etc....does anyone know of any mainstream pagan musicians?
I know that Sully from Godsmack, a metal band, is Wiccan, and Brandon Boyd form the band Incubus is.......are there any others you know of?

I have always wondered about the singer from the band Live myself, if you really listen to his lyrics they are amazing. i like to use that and Voodoo by Godsmack in rituals even from time to time.

Also, is there any other music you use in your practices that isn't intend as such? I find anything with storng bass or that makes me feel energized works well.

I don't, off the top of my head...  and I don't really feel like it's particularly my business.  I listen to them because I like their music, not for their religious beliefs.  *shrug*  (I also wouldn't assume that all "New Age" artists are necessarily Pagan or even more likely to be, btw.  You'd be surprised who seems like they "ought" to be and isn't sometimes.)

I use "Voodoo" too.  It's so hypnotic it almost induces trance.  I can't think of anyone else at the moment.

You should see the crowd when they perform it- everyone gets all swaying and calm. It's really neat.

I didn't mean to imply all New Age is as such, I meant if there are some to not list them as that wasn't what i was looking for. I don't feel either that i'm making it my business if it is common knowledge. The one artist, Brandon Boyd, had alot of interesting interviews on the topic of paganism is why I asked as well as they might have music centralizing around ritual/spirituality/paganism/etc that I could utilize in ritual myself. I listen to them because I like them obviously, and i'm not looking for just that from this post, but something that can be utilized for both.

If you ever pick up any DVD's of them, alot of their songs go that way. I'd love to go see them live. Voodoo Too is also really good. There is alot of songs on the second album that have alot of intense energy to them i'd love to use in my practices.

Speaking of ought to be...I feel that A Perfect Circle should be Pagan, but have no idea if they are. Anyone else know?

I know that Sully from Godsmack, a metal band, is Wiccan, and Brandon Boyd form the band Incubus is.......are there any others you know of?

Despite the fact that I'm a bit obsessive about music, I never have any idea about the personal lives of the musicians I listen to. I know their name, what country they're from (usually) and whether they're dead or alive. Unless it's so widely publicized that I can't escape it, I never know this kind of stuff.

Also, is there any other music you use in your practices that isn't intend as such? I find anything with storng bass or that makes me feel energized works well.

I use instrumental music in meditation/ritual a bit. But that's not the kind of music I listen to outside of those activities. But if I take some liberties with the word practice, then I would answer a big yes to this question. A big part of the way my religion has shaped me (or I shaped my religion - take your pick) is that I have this very "I embrace life" outlook and because I am *really* into music, it's something I very much embrace and therefore music is spiritual to me.

It really doesn't matter if the artist intended it to be spiritual or not. The type of music I most commonly listen to was most likely created with the intent of speaking passionately about an experience or feeling.  I'm fairly particular about the kind of music (like the artist has to have some talent) I listen to, but lyrics will trump the actual music behind them every time. I also tend to like singers who aren't the greatest technical singers out there but their voices convey a lot of passion. For example, my favorite bands/musicians are Radiohead, Dave Matthews Band, and Elliott Smith. None of them have the strongest voices, but all are passionate with interesting (to me) lyrics.

I have playlists for a million different moods and there are artists that I only listen to under certain circumstances - moods, times of day, seasons, etc. I have a playlist that I only listen to when I have nothing pressing to do because I'll end up staring off into space the entire time. I call this spiritual only because I sometimes have great insights during these times. Sometimes I just stare. So I'd say this all fits into my practice in that I'm inspired by lots of different artists. I may not use them in ritual or meditation, but their songs definitely add to all the ideas that shape the way I feel about my spirituality. It's hard thing to explain, especially at 1:20am while listening to Elliott Smith  Smiley

Define mainstream.  Tongue

Cassandra Complex headman Rodney Orpheus is a Thelemite, although the band isn't that known these days. If left hand pathers do, there's Marilyn Manson and Marc Almond (who's a CoS initiate). Field of the Nephilim's Carl McCoy hasn't - afak - said anything out right, but his themes are definitely magick/Pagan orientated.

Off-mainstream, there are loads of Pagan musicians.

OK, that one caught me by surprise.  Former Soft Cell Marc Almond?  Has his music changed much in the 10+ years since I listened to him?

I agree about FotN.  I don't pay a lot of attention to the personal lives of the musicians I'm obsessed with, but sometimes their content just screams "pagan" or "magician."

For the most part, I don't listen to mainstream musicians.  Most of the people I know anything about haven't performed in 20 years.  Jimmy Page, f'ex, was a Thelemite.  (No idea if he still is.) 

Stevie Ray, my other obsession, never said anything about his religion beyond his wholeheartedly embracing the 12-step program, but was interested in folk magic, etc.  But from what I've read it didn't go beyond interest and maybe wearing a amulet/talisman or two.  I've often suspected his friend Dr. John, New Orleans jazz/blues piano god, chose his stage name rather, um, deliberately, if you get my drift.  That's all totally the music obsessed version of UPG, however.

I don't use much vocal music at all, except in active meditation.  (Nothing like a great guitar solo to send me into alpha waves. Cheesy )  I like instrumental, some symphonic but mostly world music - middle eastern and indian have a great effect for me.  And anything with drums.  Love the drums.

I haven't listened to Marc Almond that much, mostly his singing on non-mainstream musicians' tracks lately. He was in a near-fatal motorcycle accident in 2004 and it took him a rather long time to recover. Oh, his CoS initiation happed mid 1990's, initiation carried out by Boyd Rice - yet another musician.

Yeah, McCoy's art definitely does scream. Cheesy

For me, the vast majority of mainstream music is pretty much out of my radar, so I found myself scratching my head, going: "What is out there, artist-wise?", lol.

I don't really listen to his type of music these days, but I used to absolutely adore Marc.  I still think he's got a gorgeous voice. Never heard about the accident - glad he's OK.

Not too hijack the thread too much, but I get my Satanists mixed up.  And now I'm so curious! Is CoS LaVey's group?  If not, are they philosophical satanists or ... is religious the right term?  (I'd check it myself, but I only have internet at work these days, and they've got a filter.  It's a bit of a shocker I can access the Cauldron here, actually.  And I can't access the website, just message the board.)

Oh, and I thought of one more:  Julian Cope is another one who's lyrics smack of (often uncomfortably fluffy-tinged) paganism.  "Princess moon rising high above Queen Mother Earth" and all that jazz.

According to an interview I read recently, he pretty much had to learn to sing again and was in really low spirits. Now, things have apparently cleared up and he's got a new album coming out.

CoS is LaVey's group, philosophical Satanists fits them. While you can all it a religion, it isn't a theistic one.

Thanks, that's what I meant to ask.  Don't know why I couldn't think of the work "theistic."
